Write Me A Murder is a 1961 mystery play in three acts by Frederick Knott.
The play tells the story of the brothers Clive and David Rodingham, who inherit the family fortune upon the death of their father.
They then meet business man Charles and his wife Julie, a would-be thriller writer. Charles is anxious to work with the brothers on property deals, and so encourages David, who is also a writer, to co-author a murder story with Julie. It isn’t long before the two concoct the perfect crime, which is soon twisted into a reality…
